I'm no expert in the kitchen. Everybody knows that.
Recently we've been eating a lot of frozen food; pre-done dinners and the like. Let's face it, those $3 bags of pasta dinners are not only CHEAP, but they aren't half bad.
The half that is bad, however, is wearing down my tolerance for cheap food. Since we don't have the money to go out to eat, I'm left with one remaining option: navigate the dark recesses of uncharted territories know as "the fridge" and "the pantry".
Sure, I've cooked before, but I hate it. I avoid it at all costs. I'd rather clean the bathrooms or do something really brave like fold the laundry as soon as the dryer dings. But like I said, I'm sick of everything I'm eating vaguely resembling a palette of flavors like plastic, aluminum & cardboard.
So into the unknown depths of kitchen exploration I go. I'm starting off simple and we'll see how long this really lasts.
Last night: Night 1 of my domestic endeavor resulted in a quite yummy batch of homemade chicken noodle soup...with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day! Cha-ching!
Tonight: Sausage baked ziti.
